About Pokémon GO Plus
It’s a small wearable device that lets you enjoy the game without having to look at your phone. To be more specific, it connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and will alert you when you are near a PokéStop or a wild Pokémon in the game. Moreover, the main feature of the accessory is to simplify the act of catching Pokémon. Once a Pokémon is nearby, you are able to press the button to throw a Poké Ball. Then the flash and vibration will tell you whether you catch the Pokémon successfully.
